Beijing-based psychedelic blues duo Gong Gong Gong have announced their American debut single “Siren” (out November 9 via Wharf Cat). I produced/recorded/mixed/mastered this along with their upcoming full-length Phantom Rhythm in fall 2017 – winter 2018 at Seaside Lounge, Doctor Wu’s (RIP), and Studio Windows. “Siren” is perhaps my favorite of the songs we tracked, and a wonderful introduction to this unique band. Check it out via Stereogum, along with their upcoming tour dates supporting Parquet Courts, Flasher, and Bodega.
I recently spoke with Electronic Musician about working on Bodega‘s debut LP Endless Scroll. The album was recorded at Parquet Court’s old studio space by Austin Brown and me (on the same Tascam 388 that we used for Light Up Gold), and I mixed and mastered it at Doctor Wu’s. Head over to Electronic Musician’s website to read the interview in full, and go listen to the album if you haven’t already!
Endless Scroll, the debut album by NYC art-punk quintet Bodega, is out now on What’s Your Rupture. The album has already met wide-spread acclaim, from BBC6 playing the record in its entirety and naming it Album of the Day, to Rough Trade naming it Album of the Month, to glowing reviews in DIY (5/5 “Streamlined and minimal but bursting with intelligence, humour and ideas, BODEGA are the real deal.”), Village Voice (“the summer’s ultimate Brooklyn band”) , NME (4/5, The Independent (4/5, “It’s a fantastic debut from one of the most exciting new bands around”), and many more. It’s a pleasure to see so many people so excited about the band and this album, and I’m proud to have helped bring it to fruition. Pick up your copy now and stream it below.
Fresh off their EU tour, Bodega have released their latest single “Gyrate” off their upcoming debut Endless Scroll (which I mixed, mastered, and helped to record). I’m also playing with Bodega, as part of Pill/Eaters (an improv collaborative group featuring members of Pill and Eaters, duh), at Sunnyvale on June 1. While the official release of their LP has been pushed back, they will have copies at the show, which also features the awesome new dance-punk quartet Public Practice. Endless Scroll is now out July 6 via What’s Your Rupture.
“Jack in Titanic”, the latest single from Bodega’s upcoming album Endless Scroll, is out now. Pitchfork, Paste, DIY Mag, Brooklyn Vegan and others covered the song, the third single from the debut LP. I mixed, mastered, and helped record Endless Scroll, which was produced and recorded by Austin Brown of Parquet Courts. Endless Scroll comes out June 1 via What’s Your Rupture… in the meantime, check out Bodega in a city near you.
Check out “Can’t Knock the Hustle”, Bodega’s newest single from their debut album Endless Scroll. Austin Brown produced the LP, which I mixed and mastered at my old studio Doctor Wu’s in Brooklyn, NY. FUN FACT: this LP was recorded on the Tascam 388 we used for Light Up Gold, The Keepsies, and the tape-machine shootout. Endless Scroll comes out June 1 via What’s Your Rupture.
NYC’s post-punk quintet Bodega premiered “How Did This Happen?!”, which was featured on Brooklyn Vegan, Northern Transmissions, DIY Mag, and Clash. “How?!” is the first single from their debut album Endless Scroll, produced and recorded by Austin Brown (of Parquet Courts), and mixed/mastered by me at Doctor Wu’s. Endless Scroll is out June 1 on What’s Your Rupture; in the meantime, catch the band at SXSW, around NYC, and in Europe this spring.
